Dermaplaning is a simple, safe, effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair results in healthier looking skin. Removing the hair will give the skin a more smooth and youthful appearance. Along with the vellus hair, removing the epidermal skin will help to prep the skin area for other treatments such as enzymes and chemical peels.
You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone. The long-term effects of dermaplaning are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.
After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well.
Combining exfoliation treatments like enzymes or chemical peels with dermaplaning work synergistically together to address multiple problematic skin symptoms at once. This promotes healthy skin cell turnover, prevents acne, reduces dark spots, blemishes, and boosts collagen production for plumper skin.
There is no downtime and it does not increase facial hair growth, in fact, it noticeably slows down hair growth over time. Dermaplaning leaves your skin surface very smooth, allowing for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
